Follow Your Bliss

I posted this quote last year. But, it warrants reposting. Especially at this time of the year when we reflect on what's past and what we want for the future.

And I have the firm belief in this now,
not only in terms of my own experience
but in knowing about the experience of others,
that when you follow your bliss, doors will open where
you would not have thought there were going to be
doors and where there wouldn't be a door
for anybody else.

—Joseph Campbell

  3. Absolutely words to live by. Last year I decided I would follow my bliss(es) throw all my energy, my money and my creative output into my passions - music and writing. And great opportunities opened up: a grant to study traditional harp in Ireland and a workshop in France about writing memoir, which is what I'm working on right now.

    That Joe Campbell, he knows what he's talking about.

  4. Wow, and to have the fearlessness it takes to do that...now that's something. Amen.
